Programmed learning and mathematical education, a CEM study by Kenneth O May( Book )

16 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reports on the position of programed learning in the teaching of college mathematics. A historical survey is given describing the following programing styles: Skinner, Crowder, eclectic, hybrid, Pressey, and problem. Conclusions based on research are given to claims about the benefits of programing including those of: providing for individual differences, tutorial function, controlling the learning process, providing for greater motivation, importance of overt responses, and the saving of teacher time. The summary states that the teacher and text will continue to be of greatest importance, with programing material used only as an auxiliary study aid. The report is based on studies made by the Committee on Educational Media of the Mathematical Association of America in 1963. (rs)

Advanced valve technology by Kenneth O May( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of valves dates back some 4,000 years. When man first invented the tube or pipe to transport fluids, a method was also needed to stop and start the flow. A type of wood plug valve was used by the Chinese in early bamboo pipelines. The depths of the Mediterranean have yielded artifacts which contain fragments of petcocks dating from before the time of Christ. During the time of the Roman Empire, wooden valves were used which bore a striking resemblance to the present-day plug valves. In those ancient times, and for centuries to follow, a type of plug valve or petcock has been used. In our modern times, this same type of wooden plug valve is still in use on wine casks and beer kegs to dispense these timeless drinks
